Parvalbumin-immunoreactive nerve fibres were most abundant in the lingual periodontal ligaments of incisor teeth. In the part of the ligament adjacent to the alveolar bone, thick and smooth parvalbumin-immunoreactive nerve fibres left main nerve bundles and passed towards the part of the ligament adjacent to the tooth. In the ligament, halfway between the bone and tooth surfaces, these nerve fibres repeatedly branched and extended one to four twigs to produce bush-like endings. Parvalbumin-immunoreactive fibres and terminals were infrequent in the periodontal ligaments of the molar teeth. It is possible that parvalbumin-immunoreactive endings are periodontal mechanoreceptors, but at present it is difficult to account for the different representations around rat molar and incisor teeth.
